Vixen Chat: Tika Sumpter Answers Our Juiciest QOTD
VV: Would you sacrifice your lifestyle for love?
TS: I would sacrifice my lifestyle for love because I think at the end of the day you want to share your life with someone. For me, especially now, I feel like love is a value for me. Companionship is a value. Building spiritually is a value for me. All this other stuff is great, but at the end of the day you want to share it with somebody. You want to be able to talk to somebody about it, and collaborate, and there’s just things you want to share on a different level, and I think for me, right now, that’s most important. If you were to ask me that when I was twenty, ‘No girl, bye,’ but I feel like I’m ready to build with whoever that will be.
What’s your most used curse word or sentence?
[Laughs] For one, I try not to curse. I try to respect the lord, but when I do, I ask for forgiveness [laughs] and I might say, like, “shit” a lot. Like ‘shiiit!’
What’s the best lesson your ex taught you?
I literally have very few ex’s, but I’m friends with them. I’ve learned don’t stay because you’re comfortable, stay because you want to be there and when it’s time to walk away, walk away. At one point in my life I was struggling, and I quit my job, I was over it. I was like trying to look for another job, and he was like, ‘listen, don’t worry about it, just go after your dream. I believe in you, I’ll take care of rent or whatever.’ I wasn’t used to that. That only lasted for a week, because I booked a job, like literally a four year job after that.
Would you ever pose nude?
I would, but you might see some stuff soon enough. [Laughs]I would, for an art scene or [something]creative. I’d do a PETA. I love black and whites. I think women are beautiful. I feel like our bodies, not matter what shape or size you are, there’re just beauty in the essence, there’s power, there is a real feminine energy and I love it. So I’m open but it has to be done tastefully, and there has to be a reason for it. It can’t just be ‘okay let’s drop your clothes and see you breasts and your ass for no reason.’ It has to be necessary, so we’ll see what happens.
